Part-time

Bookmark and Share

St. Ambrose University School of Social Work has a part-time program, making it possible for the highly motivated student to obtain the MSW degree on a part-time basis over three years, including summer sessions. Some students find that a four-year schedule is necessary due to personal responsibilities but the MSW program encourages students to complete the degree in the three year time frame. Students must fulfill all degree requirements within four years from date of initial enrollment.

The basic part-time program is scheduled for Saturdays, during which students take two classroom courses (6 credits) in the fall and spring semesters and two courses on Saturdays in the summer sessions. Practicum placement requirements take place concurrently with the required social work theory and practice courses in the second and third fall and spring semesters (9 credits).

In addition to the part-time program described above, the MSW Program does admit students, on a space available basis, to enroll part-time in the weekday schedule.

The following are the course requirements for the Part-Time Program: Students may complete requirements for the MSW degree on a part-time basis. They will complete four semesters of 6 credits and four semesters of 9 credits each. Both full- and part-time students complete 60 hours for the MSW degree.
